I am a SIcillian-American, and grew up eating the food from my heritage, made lovingly in my mother's, aunt's and cousin's kitchens. That said, this is a very average ""red sauce"" joint. The portions are HUGE, but the quality was not amazing. The wine list is not good--there is a very small choice and not good quality. The owner is friendly and attentive, but the wait service was not. We were left wanting water refills, drink orders, more bread, and the check--but we were pretty much ignored once the meal came out. Another reviewer called this ""fine dining"" and it is not fine dining. The decor is ""old school"" 1970s style and very casual at that. The Sinatra music was blasting so loud out of the speakers that we practically had to shout to converse. It is good, decent, average Italian food, but not formal, or fine dining in any way. It's just a cheap-eats type place.
Pros: Large portions
Cons: Not great food, inattentive staff, music too loud
